lllt lacing increase
in marijuana abuse

8y Lance Williams
Editor In Chief

Victor Hazard doesn't need national statistics to
tell him about the marijuana problem spreading
throughout high schools and colleges nationwide.

He sees it all the time in the faces of the growing
numbers of students who have to make the trek to his
office to face the penalties for using marijuana.

In fact, the number of students he has dealt with is
on pace to double the previous year‘s total.

This brings up two big problems for Hazard,
UK'S associate dean of students and the man who
disciplines student drug users.

First, UK doesn't have a real program in place to
deal with marijuana abusers. Second, Hazard’s not
sure the students are receptive to the help.

“Clearly the attitude I’m dealing with here is
WVhat's the big deal?" Hazard said. “They know it's
a yainst the law, but there is a feeling of nonchalance
about it. They have not had to face the repercussions

behind the president’s words.

Clinton heralded the coming
of an “age of possibility” and
encouraged support of programs
for thc'cmironment, economic
security, education and the fight
against crime. He also took cred«
it for a healthy economy and
challenged Congress to never
shut down the federal govern-
ment again.

The latter especially worked
in Clinton’s favor, L'K political
science professor Donald (iross

“The public seems to be most
upset with Congress about shut—
ting down the government." he

(x‘ross called the address a suc-
cess in part because ofClinton‘s
ability to identify with themes,
such as “family values” and
toughness on crime, that helped
Republicans win control of
Congress in 1994.

Fayette County Democratic
Party Chairman Louie Mack said
the speech shows Clinton is will-
ing to compromise with the

“I think he's reaching out to


both sides to try to find a middle
approach to try to solve the prob<
lcms the nation faces." he said.

Still. the president's speech
was not without shortcomings,
analysts said.

(Ilinton failed to account for
the economic feasibility of new
proposals, which included eco—
nomic programs to help troubled
workers and give $1.000 mcrit

"They sound very good. but
the specifics of the implementa—
tion becomes very problematic,"
(iross said. “The money starts
piling up very quickly."

Aside from applauding efforts
in Bosnia. Clinton also failed to
adequately define the United
States~ role in foreign affairs, said
Vince Davis of UK's Patterson
School of Diplomacy.

“Are we going to try to be a
leader in the world?" he asked.

strategy," he said.


Breaking the rules a second
time can mean big trouble. Most
of the students getting caught are
freshmen who live on-campus.

“(Freshman residents) may be
less aware, or not take the rules as
serious," said Pat \Vhitlow, associ~
ate director of residence life.

\Vhitlow agreed that finding a
way to fight the problem is hard.

“\Ve've been trying to find
some education program,” \Vhitr
low said, “but there's not anything
that we’ve found yet."

The only alternative for the
campus is the On Campus Talk—
ing About Alcohol program, or
()(ITAA. The main problem with
the program is that it focuses on
alcohol, and includes very little
about marijuana.

Ina addition, ()CTAA “already
has a caseload that is as big as a
well is deep," Hazard said.

UK is left scrambling for some-
thing to help educate the students,
but Hazard said there is a nation-
wide problem as well.

lightly," Hazard said.

lllt environmentalists concerned about Rhode Island oil snill's damage

Although the latest environ—

affect people and wildlife on a
worldwide scale.

\Vhen the tugboat of a barge
carrying four million gallons of
heating oil caught on fire, the six
crew members had to abandon
ship. The barge ran ashore Friday
night near a wildlife refuge,
spilling at least 828,000 gallons of


Members ofthe UK communi-
tv have concerns for the safety of
the wildlife as well as the possibili-
ty for disastrous future ecological
problems as a result of the spill.

“Of course there’s the obvious
thing that hap ens right away — oil
gets all over (the animals), birds in
particular, and they die because it
ruins the integrity of their feath-
ers," said David \Nestneat, associ-
ate professor in biological sciences
and director of the center for ecol-
ogy, evolution and behavior.

VVestneat said in addition to
having these immediate effects on


the animals, spills can hurt the
environment permanently when
the oil sinks to the bottom of the
ocean floor.

This type of problem makes it
difficult for experts to predict the
amount of damage such a disaster
will cause. Some )roblems cannot
even be detected until well into
the future, VVestneat said.

“There’s certainly some nasty
chemicals, like carcinogens, in oil
that could get into the ecosystem
and build up in birds and mam—
mals," he said.
